More Like 'Oopsy Daisy'

I have been tidying up my desk, which is only small and clutters easily so I decided I would use all of the bits of DP and the embossings I had lying around, that I hadn't put away yet to make a card, I have to say at this point the mess is compounded by the fact that my cockatiel, Paris, has his cage next to the said desk and sits there throwing sunflowers at me if I don't let him out...makes for interesting card making!!!

Back to card making - I have cased the same one I made for Kathy (aka Wattle) as Featured Stamper, you can see it here. I just changed, or added a couple of things.....it is also monochromatic which qualifies it for the StampinB challenge....When I look at this photo I have to smile to myself as I am not at all a BLING person IRL...but look at this!! LOL! I started out stamping not using bling at all - now there is hardly a card that doesn't have it on in one form or another - it's an evolving art...or is it us that evolve!?
This card was made with white embossing on blue card layered on white and then a scalloped rectangle (thanks to my good friend Melinda) in Navy 'bubbled' pattern. I have used the same striped DP as on the other card but added torn corners and paper piercing - don't look too closely at that - my paper piercer came undone - can you believe that, apparently it happens to one every now and then - trust me to get it - so I had to continue holding just the needle part - not so easy - Upsy Daisy alright - more like Oopsy Daisy - hence the title! LOL!!!
I have also added blue/silver ribbon, although it looks just silver here...and silver brads....and wha-la one card made and a tidier desk - mainly because I moved most of my gear onto the table to sit with the family while they watched a movie...so who am I really fooling!?!? But I feel like I accomplished something...one more card for Kathy...what a pleasure it has been casing your gallery Kathy - I salute you my friend - and my StampinB card done...monochromatic...I have just learned that term since I read the StampinB Challenge - so thank you Ladies....I am learning every day!!!
